How to properly pack a perfume for shipping internationally

Although most courier providers do not recommend shipping liquids, many people still decide to ship them on a daily basis. Especially when sending perfumes or similar goods, careful packaging is of utmost importance to protect your shipment from damages.


Place the bottle of perfume in its original box. Alternatively, place the bottle of perfume in a box that matches its size.


Put the perfume into a Ziplock bag or wrap it in foil and thoroughly tape to avoid any leakage.


Wrap the perfume in bubble wrap for better external protection.


Put the perfume in the box and fill it up with packaging peanuts or any other suitable cushioning material.


Close the box and seal it with tape.

Restrictions on sending perfume internationally

As most contain a high concentration of alcohol, perfume is therefore considered a dangerous and flammable liquid which is on the list of restricted items by couriers. This means that it is prohibited to send perfumes containing alcohol for transportation by air (including express services).

If you wish to send perfumes internationally, please check carrier restrictions relating to the specific countries carefully before deciding to ship.


FAQs on sending perfume internationally

Do all couriers allow shipping perfumes?
It is important to note that not all courier companies will ship perfumes internationally. For example, DHL, TNT and UPS will not ship packages that include perfumes within the content. Each courier has specific rules and requirements for different shipments and services, so we recommend checking this further with the designated courier for your route. When booking Express or Regular plus shipping services, please make sure not to include these items as the courier will refuse to collect the parcel. If you need further assistance, you can reach us by chat, phone or email before shipping to discuss your options further.
Can I send perfume abroad?
Unfortunately, it is unsafe to send perfume and other flammable liquids by air transport internationally. This includes sending perfume as an individual by air from Europe to the U.S. or on any other international route.
How do people send perfumes and cologne in the mail?
Even if it is restricted, many people still mail perfumes and colognes in a parcel together with clothes or other belongings. In case you decide to ship perfumes in the mail, make sure the perfume is well packed so it won’t break or leak during transit.
Can I have a perfume delivered as a gift?
Yes, most online stores offer to ship perfumes by courier since they have an authorised network in place for sending their perfumes to the clients. Therefore, if you find the perfect perfume online, you can arrange the delivery of perfume to someone by providing the receiver’s address when ordering the product.
Are perfumes in sticks and powder allowed for shipping?
Yes, perfumes in the form of sticks and powder don’t contain alcohol and are not liquids. Therefore, these types of perfumes are allowed to be shipped by mail or courier.
Does shipping insurance apply when sending perfume internationally by courier?
Almost every service booked at Eurosender is insured with basic coverage included in the price. However, shipping insurance does not apply when shipping any restricted item, including perfume, by courier. Therefore, if you decide to send a perfume as an individual across Europe or internationally, you will be doing so on your own risk.

Take into consideration these guidelines when shipping perfume in Europe and internationally. Nevertheless, please consider that following them does not guarantee that the courier company will transport your package without restriction. In case you decide to ship perfume, Eurosender will not be held responsible for any damages caused by the transportation of your shipment.
